Companion Groups are small, house groups that meet monthly for a meal and Bible study together. The word “companion” has roots in “co” and “pan” or together with bread. When we gather around a meal, relationships deepen and we find COMPANIONS for our journey with God.
What makes Companion groups different from other small groups? These groups are intentionally inter-generational. We believe that growing as disciples works best when we apprentice faith alongside people who are learning to practice their faith, too. That means we need people from all generations working together.
Companion groups share the core values of Messy Church. We are centered around Jesus through creativity, hospitality, and celebration with all ages working together. (For more information about Messy Church check out our Messy Church page Messy Church)
We currently have 8 Companion groups meeting during the 2019-2020 school year. Companion groups are open to family units of all shapes and sizes, from singles to grandparents and everyone in between. If you’d like more information, please contact Johannah (email@example.com). If you’d like to participate, please complete a registration form and turn it in to the church office.
You can still join a group!
Each adult will need to fill out a separate form. Please note that all adults participating in a Companion group with children or youth will be expected to abide by our Safe Sanctuary policy and have a background check on record with Aldersgate.
